If you have "city water" it is actually beneficial to your teeth as it has flouride added to it to help prevent decay Pure water itself has essentially no effect on teeth, since the solubility of tooth enamel in water is very small. However, a high amount of fluid/saliva in the mouth for extended periods can contribute to an environment that permits faster plaque buildup; this is sometimes noted by dentists among people who breathe solely through their mouths.
